Here - ~3km from  Sydney Centrepoint tower - Superb FWs look to be
doing OK.  I  see confrontations between coloured males so there are
abutting territories.  Cat density is high here - probably as high
it gets.  I'd guess significantly more cats here than Sydney's northern
suburbs where there are apparent less Superb FWs.
